Scotland vs Czech Republic UEFA EURO LIVE Football Score 14 June 2021
ABOUT THE MATCH
Scotland is going head to head with Czech Republic starting on 14 Jun 2021 at 13:00 UTC at Hampden Park stadium, Glasgow city, Scotland. The match is a part of the European Championship, Group D.
It was 1998 when Scotland last played a major tournament game, losing 3-0 to Morocco to exit the FIFA World Cup in France, but now they are back and for the first time get to play a finals match at Hampden Park. Czech Republic will hope for better than in last autumn’s UEFA Nations League encounters with the Scots, who won both fixtures including a 1-0 victory in Glasgow.
Scotland: Marshall; Hendry, Hanley, Tierney; O’Donnell, McTominay, McGregor, McGinn, Robertson; Dykes, Adams
Czech Republic: Vaclík; Coufal, Čelůstka, Kalas, Bořil; Souček, Král; Masopust, Darida, Jankto; Schick
Alex O’Henley, Scotland reporter: The consensus appears to be that this game against Czech Republic could open a path for the Scots to progress to the knockout stage for the first time. Victories home and away in the last year should give the Scots confidence, and they go into their first Group D game in fine form with just two defeats in their last 16 matches. From the coach to the players, the message all week has been we want to be positive and win the first match.”
Ondřej Zlámal, Czech Republic reporter: The Czechs know how their opponents play from their recent UEFA Nations League meetings: determined, confident, direct. Jaroslav Šilhavý’s men must make the most of their high pressing, pace and attacking football based on teamwork, and also avoid defensive blunders. The opening goal might well be the only one.
